I have a dog!

For as long as I have known him, my husband has loved dogs, and wanted a dog. I'm a cat person, so I'm against dogs by nature. They're too clingy, too demanding, and too much effort... cats are less work, but as big a reward. It's to his credit that he indulged my demands for cats while suffering without a dog, but after the second one finally was friends with the first cat, he demanded his due. Our next pet would be a dog. I agreed, since he'd allowed me to have my two cats, and a few months later, we adopted a black lab puppy.

I did my best to help, and to share in the house breaking work and the training, since he was helpful with my cats, but it's still his dog.

And then I had this horrible, painful, devastatingly stressful day at work... the kind of day that make you want to use a baseball bat on your co-workers. So on my way home I called my husband, to vent and get sympathy, and when I got home, guess who was waiting for me right inside the door? A glowing, bouncing, ecstatic, beyond thought super-happy little dog, who literally threw herself at me, while her tail was wagging so hard she had difficulties balancing her "assault".

It's really hard to be unhappy when you're greeted by someone who is so happy to see you. I'm pretty sure that I don't even have to be nice to her as long as I notice her, and as long as I give her attention, she will keep loving me. That's kind of touching.

So while I'm still a cat person in all ways that matter, I make an exception for my puppy-girl. She's my dog, so that makes her superior to other dogs.

Awwwww, what a sweetie!

I'll admit, it's easier to have a cat, as long as you don't get squicked out about the litter box.

But there's nothing like the love a dog gives!

One of my sons has a black lab mix. Very friendly guy and his tail is always wagging.

Black labs are super good friends - even to cat persons. All they want is love, food, and someone to throw their ball.

This one also wants someone to hold the other end of her knotted rope while she tugs at it, and she wants a lap to sleep on when she's tired. My husband says black labs grow to be quite big, so I'm a little worried about her lapdog habit. I'm hoping it's a part of the baby phase and that she'll outgrow it before she outweighs me...

I have a little lapdog, and when he was a pup, he DID NOT want to be in my lap.
He wanted to be off on an adventure, looking for trouble.

I would stubbornly pull him into my lap, against his will, every chance I had.
Now, he's 4 y/o and most times, I find him in my lap, with no idea when he parked there.

Maybe your new bestie needs a dog bed on the floor?

She has her own bed. She just prefers a lap.

Ya. Mine too. Though, sometimes he'll be curled up napping. But he ususally prefers the sofa. Or even better yet on top of a pillow ON the sofa!

As your lab pup grows up, and your lap doesn't grow, you will eventually end up with a drooling head on your thigh and big brown eyes fixed on your face ....

Oh, I already learned that. She's teething, so every single item within reach gets grabbed and viciously chewed on. She demolished a paperback yesterday...

Oh, yes, I'm sure she'll outgrow it in no time

She's lovely. There's nothing better than a dog that's happy to see you!! Congrats.
